Flush-mounted installation of hobs
Easy to keep clean, no gaps in which dirt can accumulate, no differences in height. Perfect for installing hobs in ceramic worktops!
Based on its extraordinary technical characteristics ceramic is often used in laboratory technology, the tool industry and astronautics. For some time now, this material has also been making its way into the kitchen!
Due to its innovative functionality, this material is a favourite among professional cooks. The poreless surface does not absorb liquids or grease, is easy to clean and is hygienic. Its high scratch and wear resistance as well as resistance to UV light, household chemicals and foods ensures long durability.
Those with artistic tastes love its comfortable aesthetics, similar to natural stone, combined with its elegant appearance. The diverse colour palette of Systemo ceramic guarantees a personalized and modern design.

Authentic materials for a long life cycle: Systemo’s worktops use natural materials that have been additionally processed in order for them to meet the high standards required in the kitchen.
Ceramic is harder than steel, meaning that these worktops are virtually cut- and scratch-resistant. To protect your high-quality kitchen knives, however, we recommend that you always use a chopping board, otherwise the knives will become blunt and leave traces of metal abrasion on the worktop.
The surface is hygienic, as harmful substances cannot peel off or be liberated. The poreless surface makes it largely impossible for mould and bacteria to multiply. As a result, the ceramic surface is ideal for use in direct contact with foods. Foods can be stored or processed directly on the worktop.
Systemo ceramic worktops are pressure resistant, which is why ordinary kitchen chores pose no problem. Ceramic is a very hard but brittle material. However, as with every material, point loads should be avoided, as they can cause damage. When cleaning the kitchen, you should therefore refrain from leaning on the worktop with your full weight because this may result in overloading, particularly in the area of the webs, for instance, in the sink area. This may result in cracks.
Since they are sintered at temperatures around 1000°C, ceramic worktops can withstand high temperatures extremely well. However, in order to avoid any changes in colour or damage to the worktop, placing hot pans and pots directly on the surface should be avoided. This particularly puts webs around the cutouts at risk. In order to avoid any risks, it is recommended to use an appropriate pot stand.
The Systemo ceramic worktop has an absorption level of virtually zero, making it waterproof and resistant to liquids.
Due to its resistance to chemicals, acids and alkaline substances, ceramic surfaces are very often used in laboratories. The material is consequently predestined for use in the kitchen.
The Systemo range provides a multitude of options to meet kitchen design requirements. Not only the thickness of the worktops but also a consistent layout strongly influences a kitchen’s appearance.
Matching support panels, recesses and wall panels give the kitchen a touch of class. What’s more, many Systemo worktops are extremely well-suited to the flush-mounted installation of sinks and hobs.
With undermount sinks, the sink is positioned directly below the worktop. With worktops in thicknesses of 1,5 / 3,0 / 4,0 cm, the ceramic element projects only 0,7 cm above the edge of the sink. This creates a very subtle, delicate frame for the stainless steel sink. In all thicknesses, the ceramic surface continues beyond the edge of the stainless steel sink. As a result, there are no differences in height or gaps in the surface and the worktop is easy to clean around the sink.
Modern ceramic material is predestined for simple, unobtrusive edging. Its modern appearance is enhanced by gluing the apron to the surface via a mitre. A small chamfer is then applied to the mitred corner. The resultant joint is almost invisible. This complex detail is implemented on panels 1,5 / 3,0 / 4,0 cm thick. The Systemo elements in a thickness of 2,0 cm are solid. The edges are polished and chamfered. The edge is finished in the same colour as the ceramic basic material but does not have the same colour and texture of the surface.
As Systemo ceramic worktop surfaces are non-porous, it is extremely difficult for liquids and grease to soak into the worktop and stain it. This means that these worktops can be considered water- and dirt-resistant.
Measuring 8 on the Mohs mineral material hardness scale, they are highly resistant to cuts and scratches, as well as to common household chemicals and foodstuffs, and food can be prepared on the worktop itself. More on cleaning & care »
